Slowing down before India...

November 8, 2012 - Lewes, United Kingdom

We're enjoying long walks in the countryside and quiet time together, while preparing for the upcoming trip. We have a little spiritual household with morning and evening meditation in the meditation room and shared cooking of joint meals.

Our second night here was quite spectacular: Guy Fawkes' Night, when the streets were cleared by 2pm and a rumored 20,000 people came to town to witness the action... Around 10pm, there was a massive march right down our street with people bearing torches and effigies, and throwing fireworks. All quite good-humored. Lots of people in costumes that are supposed to date from the sixteenth century, but somehow included zulu warriors, confederate soldiers, and even red "Indians'!

The weather has been cold but sunny or slightly overcast, so hat, gloves and scarf are called for when outside. Days are short - it gets dark soon after 4pm.
